Subject: An interesting examination of gender roles
Other reviewers have pointed this out, but the thing I found fascinating about the book is the way that men are trapped in the role of those who must die, and women are trapped in a role of such utter passivity that they are considered heroic if they lift a finger to row the lifeboats.

Subject: A good nmatch of reader and book
Ms. Hester’s constant joie de vivre and total self-confidence, flowing as though from an untroubled life, superbly match the assumed intent of the editor, Logan Marshall, and presumably that of his readers in 1912. She thereby presents this piece in its original form and spirit, which is good for the listeners in an historical sense, though certainly not an attitude that would pass unquestioned in modern times, a hundred years hence. It is that contrast that most attracts me to this book. The piece begins with a recitation of Christian virtues, one assumes socially-compulsory in those times, and continues with confident references to hymns and prayers to God and the assertion that everyone aboard exhibited the “utmost heroism”. In addition, we have the unquestioning, unexamined, reference to concepts such as a “noble death”, the exhortation to “die as a man for manhood’s sake” (on pain of immediate execution by “bullet”), the supposed ethical rule of “women and children first” etc. More than as a factual history, I appreciate this piece for its presentation of the ethics and expectations of a century ago, in contrast (?) to our own era. All but the final three sections are specifically of the Titanic. The “and sea disaster” portion begins at section 17, which do not contain any “other sea disasters” but rather discuss current technology and propose new procedures at sea. Few ships names and nautical terms are used, so Ms. Hester’s unfamiliarity in that area do not detract from the overall appreciation of the piece.

Subject: All Hands On Deck For This Audiobook
This is a must hear! On April 14 & 15 or any day of the year.

This is a lesson in human "pig-headedness" against Mother Nature--and you know who can win almost every time. Lose yourself in this reading and travel back to that very day,the exact moment. I am glad I am in my cozy bed and not in the water. Kudos to the reader and the compiler of the data. Amazing!!

Subject: A top job Allyson.
Allyson Hester does a more than competent job with this interesting but aged text. As an Australian I had some difficulty at first with her strong Southern accent. However, this soon became immaterial as the book proceeded. A top job!
